Illamasqua Store Opening In Leeds!

Morning lovelies! 

On Thursday evening, I was luckily invited to the Illamasqua store opening event in Leeds. After standalone stores in London and Liverpool, Illamasqua decided to add Leeds to the list! Which i couldnt have been more thrilled about! The store is located in the beautiful Victoria Quarter in Leeds and it is in great company! The shop is right opposite Mulberry if you are familiar!

I hotfooted it on Thursday evening and was the first to arrive, lucky for me Lucy popped up behind me as i was ticking my name off the guest list. We had a little char and were greeted by a glass of champagne which is always a winner in my book. More familiar faces arrived soon after and i got to see some of my blogging favourites again including Nicoletta, Ray, Lora, Danielle, Caroline and Tor
View from the balcony 
We got to have a little play around with the products, have a chat with friends, drink champagne and have our make up done if we wanted. The store is absolutely stunning, just as i expected it to be and i am so excited that it has come to Leeds! No more trecking to Sheffield now for my Illamasqua fix! 
I must admit i was extremely star struck when i spotted Alex Box, famous make up artist, creative director of Illamasqua and the amazing woman behind the beautiful imagery Illamasqua produce. It was especially amazing to be in the same room as her! 
Have you spotted Alex Box?
A massive thank you to all the lovely girls who i had the pleasure in meeting again & making my evening even more amazing, the gorgeous MUA's in the Leeds store and everyone at Illamasqua, especially Hayley for being super lovely as always! I had such a great time!
